(p.172) 8 Conclusion
Democracy and Diversity

Benjamin Reilly (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the implications of reform trends for political development in the Asia-Pacific region and for new democracies in other parts of the world. It is argued that there is indeed an emerging Asian model of democracy — but one that has little relationship with the political restrictions advocated by the region’s now-retired autocrats. Rather, in something of a grand irony, the political systems of most new Asia-Pacific democracies are not only becoming more consolidated, but in many cases are actually moving closer to the Anglo-American model of two-party democracy.
